The Ideal Crash - dEUS

Info Tracklist Versions


The Ideal Crash is the third studio album released in March 1999. The album was recorded in Spain, U.K. and Belgium and was mixed at Olympic Studios and includes the single “Instant Street”, which became an underground hit in Europe. It was produced and mixed by David Bottrill.

The Ideal Crash was the first dEUS album to be directly released through a major label (Island Records) but it’s also the only dEUS album that didn’t get a US release. The album cover art is the first dEUS CD cover that does not feature a painting by ex-guitar player Rudy Trouvé.

A couple of months after the release, a limited 2-disc-edition of The Ideal Crash was released. The second CD is a “CD Extra” which can be played as a CD-Rom. Tracks 13-15 can also be played on an audio CD player : the music is as heard on the videos, including background noises on Instant Street & Ideal Crash
